RE: Show us your ER

Very nice, Mark. Love the spare shut-offs available on the strainer. It all looks so very well laid out.

I'd love to come by and see her in person sometime after she arrives, maybe when passing through Martinez.

We're hoping for a run to Angel Island sometime in early June if the weather and work schedules cooperate. I'll let you know when the plans gel.

Here's what it looks like.* You can see the top nut holding one of the lengths of threaded rod.* The FRAM filter no. is CA3924.

Thanks Darrell, that looks just the job. The problem with the other idea I had of a filter that was complete in itself & which might just be the right diameter to clamp straight on the intake, is you can be sure if obtainable there would be no entry point for the rocker cover breather/scavenger. Thanks again for that. !st job back in Oz. See also comments on your "she swims" thread.

RE: Show us your ER

After removing the old rusted fuel tanks last fall, I cleaned everything and painted. Now I'm making shelves to use that space.

RE: Show us your ER

So you now have a trawler without fuel tanks? You just can't beat THAT fuel economy.

Loll

The po installed new ones aft of the original tanks. He just left the old ones in place, hoping they would rust away i guess.

So how much fuel do you carry now and does the smaller (?) Tanks effect the displacement of your boat and the way she handles?

I now have 80 gallons instead of 160. Hard to tell the difference since i didn't use the boat before the change but i think she is a bit heavier aft. Don't feel it's a big issue.

RE: Show us your ER

Just curious 80 gallons is a lot of weight at 7.1 pounds per gallon or 568 pounds.

but if you have no previous point of refrence the point is moot.

Anyway that space you now have. Man could I do a lot with that.

I'm sure you will too.
